Once again, Charger fans have been let down in epic primetime fashion. All they had to do was beat a Steelers team that didn’t even have their starting QB… in their own stadium. I had to listen to tonight’s game on the radio, where it was repeatedly rubbed in our faces that there were practically more Steelers fans than Charger fans. Who can blame us? Who wants to watch this team play live, and spend money to do it?
If there is any positive I can take out of tonight, it’s that Mike McCoy, Frank Reich, Joe D’Alessandris, and John Pagano’s seats may finally be getting hot. This team is totally unprepared, week after week, in all phases of the game. Philip is back to being his stereotypical self, and any notion that this team is better off than it was under Norv Turner was just an illusion. It is, in fact, the same depressing team. A team where Donald Butler and Donald Brown are making crazy money, while rookies and UDFA’s outperform them regularly.
Frank Reich should have the draw play tattooed backwards on his forehead, JUST in case he wakes up one day, and can’t remember 90% of his play book. Can’t forget that little gem!
I really don’t know what else to say. I didn’t think we would win this game. It was clear to me at the end of the half that we wouldn’t. We let the Steelers hang around all night, and they finally picked our locks. We head to Green Bay on a short week, where I fully expect to be beaten by a much better team, and be 2-4, and quite possibly already out of playoff contention, barring a total miracle.
